Cardiovascular Conditions: Individuals with cardiovascular diseases, such as hypertension, heart failure, or a history of heart attacks, should refrain from practicing transcendental breathwork without prior consultation with a qualified healthcare professional. The increased intensity of breathing techniques may strain the cardiovascular system, potentially exacerbating these conditions.
Respiratory Disorders: Those with respiratory conditions like asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or any other respiratory illness should approach transcendental breathwork with caution. The rapid and deep breathing involved in the practice may induce hyperventilation and trigger respiratory distress in susceptible individuals.
Pregnancy: Pregnant individuals are advised to avoid transcendental breathwork or any other breathwork practices that involve intense breath retention or altered breathing patterns. Such practices could potentially affect fetal oxygenation and maternal well-being.
Epilepsy: People with epilepsy or a history of seizures should abstain from  transcendental breathwork due to the potential risk of inducing seizures through rapid and deep breathing techniques.
Psychological Conditions: Individuals with a history of psychiatric disorders, particularly those prone to panic attacks, anxiety disorders, or dissociative episodes, should approach Vajra Breath cautiously. The altered states of consciousness induced by breathwork may exacerbate these conditions or trigger distressing psychological experiences.
Recent Surgery: Those who have undergone recent surgical procedures, especially abdominal or thoracic surgeries, should refrain from transcendental breathwork until they have fully recovered and received clearance from their healthcare provider. The intense breathing techniques could strain surgical incisions or compromise healing.
While transcendental breathwork can be a valuable tool for self-exploration and personal development, it is not a substitute for professional medical or psychiatric treatment. If you have any concerns about your suitability for transcendental breathwork or any other breathwork practices, please consult with a qualified healthcare provider before proceeding. By engaging in Vajra Breath exercises, you acknowledge and accept the risks associated with breathwork and agree to take full responsibility for your physical and mental well-being during the practice.
